Open Door Project

The Matter of Money featuring Patricia Boswell


September 24, 2018 -
1:30pm to 3:00pm


How do factors such as generational learning, relational styles, and emotional expression define and impact our experience with money? And how can we move beyond our experiences to best support our economically disadvantaged students?

This session will address:

  • Examining our own financial wellness—we can’t take someone farther than we are comfortable going ourselves
  • Identifying strategies for deepening conversations with students
  • Learning how to tolerate—even encourage—conversations that elicit emotions and dilemmas
  • Understanding the power of listening

Participants will be encouraged to take an active role through sharing experiences, truths, and vulnerabilities.

Patricia Boswell is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Board-Certified Counselor. She has 37 years of experience working with individuals and couples, as well as facilitating groups, workshop intensives and training presentations. She has a private practice at the Nuin Center in Highland Park.
